The Company''s Management is responsible for the preparation of these fnancial statements that give a true and fair view of the fnancial position, fnancial performance and cash fows of the Company in accordance with the Accounting Standards referred to in Section 211(3C) of the Companies Act, 1956 ("the Act") and in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and the disclosures in the fnancial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the fnancial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the fnancial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company''s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the fnancial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is suffcient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.
